Haryana CM hits out at Kejriwal ahead of MCD polls
New Delhi, November 27: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Saturday took on the main opposition Aam Aadmi Party in the run-up to the MCD election saying that Arvind Kejriwal considers himself the owner of Delhi.
"The Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal considers himself as the owner of Delhi, unlike our Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who thinks of himself as a servant of this Nation," Haryana CM said.
Earlier in the day, Union Minister Anurag Thakur attacked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and accused its leaders of engaging in corruption and scams.
"All AAP ministers are not only involved in serious allegations of corruption but also jailed. This shows that his (AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal's) politics is only about corruption, liquor and scams," said Thakur while speaking to media during a public rally on Saturday.
The senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said, "People want to give a clear message to Kejriwal in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) election that false promises won't work."
The civic polls are shaping up to be a two-way contest between the BJP, which currently holds the civic reins in the national capital, and the AAP, which is in power in the state.
The MCD elections are scheduled to be held on December on December 4. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday released its 12-point manifesto for the MCD elections.
The counting of votes for the 250-ward MCD will take place on December 7.
